October Half Term

With the summer holidays out the way, it is time to think about October half term activities!

On Monday 25 October, we have got you covered with Rhubarb Theatre performing Dustbin Doris and then the company will be hosting a creative workshop for your little ones.

Dustbin Doris
Monday 25 october 11am
£10 adults, £7 children

A dustbin, a homeless lady and an extra-ordinary tale of courage:

In a makeshift cardboard home-made home

Lives a kind old lady with a heart of gold.

Rescuing creatures great and small,

Dustbin Doris will amaze us all.

It’s bin collection day and our two heroic waste collectors Max and Ola are racing to make up lost time. But what’s this? A dustbin that refuses to release its contents! What could be attached? It’s Doris, the dotty old lady who lives in the park.A struggle ensues as she clings onto her possessions.  But every bin has a silver liner. So, when the pair of refuse loaders realise that ‘one man’s trash is another woman’s treasure’, an amazing trove of wonderous tales recycle their way out of the rubbish. 

Rhubarb Theatre, known for their imaginative styles of storytelling, perform their latest bin-full of fantasy for all the family. Prepare for joy and sadness, laughter and tears & surprises around every corner. Dustbin Doris is waste-deep in theatrical play, puppetry, mask, dance, song and lots of laughter.

Creating fun with rhubarb theatre
£5 (only £3 if you purchase your child a ticket to the show)

This workshop is packed with games and drama exercises to get the imagination buzzing. From creating your own stories and characters to giving new twists to old tales. Perfect for 8yrs+.
